A good query consists of three things:
Enclose exact words or phrases in double quotes. Include plus (+) to require words, minus (--) to exclude words, and OR between words. i.e. forwarding OR coverage + "all calls"-- remote
Don't include "special" characters in your search (i.e. &, <, >, *, $, / ,\, ....)
